Goals: Guidelines to Succeeding

By Team DBG | September 6, 2017 | No Comments

Are you trying to lose weight? Have you set a goal that you are never able to reach? If so, then this blog is for you.

For starters, is your goal reachable and realistic. Too often people will set unrealistic goals. Your goal needs to be challenging, yet maintainable. You need to create stepping stones and small victories that will lead you to that end result. The result that is specific for you as an individual. Create rewards for yourself that keep you motivated and wanting more.

Secondly, are you pushing yourself? Are you one to consistently make excuses but still expect results? Do you have someone who holds you accountable? It’s easy in this chaotic life to get “too busy” or “too tired”. If that’s the case for you, then you need someone who is on your side and wants your goal almost as bad as you do. Who checks in with you. Holds you accountable and most importantly, believes in you on those days when you don’t believe in yourself.

Next, do you quit your goal pursuit too early due to lack of results? On average 65% of dieters quit because they get frustrated with lack of results. Remember the scale is not the only guide in a fitness goal. Go by how you feel, how you sleep, how you look, and how your clothes fit. The scale can fluctuate so much, especially us women, so use it as a tool, but do not rely on it. Also, along the line of results, be patient. Fitness is a lifestyle change, not overnight amazon prime delivery.

Last, I want to touch on diet and supplementation. I saved the best for last because so many people do not understand the vital importance of nutrition and supplementation. So the basic truth is, if your diet isn’t on point for what your body needs to lose weight, you won’t. You cannot outwork a bad diet. If you have a history of yo-yo dieting or cutting calories you have more than likely damaged your metabolism which will alter the equation for you to lose weight. Can you outwork this? Yes, but the healthiest outlook is fixing the metabolism before any other harsh dieting. The equation of output being greater than food intake still stands to lose weight, but the metabolism determines how much we individually burn during activities. We are all different.

In regards to supplementation:  What is this? Supplementation is just that: it supplements a good diet and workout program. Diet pills may help with energy and appetite control, but they do not control what you put in your mouth all day or if you work out. That’s you. Other supplements: multivitamin and fish oil are the two that I view as critical diet contents. Any fitness goal will require the intake of these for the individual to yield the greatest results. Multivitamins help us get the micronutrients that we do not get enough of in our diets. This helps maintain a cellular balance and keeps are body functioning top notch. The fish oil is there for those who do not get enough Omega 3 and 6 in their diets. This balances the inflammatory process within our Bodies.

As I said, fitness goals help us make lifestyle changes. It requires mental strength, physical strength, and emotional support. You have to be stronger than the temptations and realize that food will always be there and in moderation is fine. You just have to find control. And the most important, every time you wake up have a power list that helps you win that day. Whether that’s workout, drink waster, and no cheat meals- check that off as you go. It helps you feel like a bad ass every time you check something off.

As always, with dedication and work ethics; You can’t blame genetics

I’m currently in the best shape of my life and have never felt better. I’ve learned so much during my journey in the fitness world. I now have a burning desire to help others. Too many people ignore the mental and spiritual growth potential of fitness and consider it a shallow, frivolous hobby. I’m committed to shifting this mindset with other like-minded individuals who are intelligent, motivated and entrepreneurial. I’m excited to continue on this path with others who are enthusiastic about the work it takes to achieve success. - Bryan Watmore (CEO)
